"The staff make the effort to plan

new things for the children to do.

No two days are the same."



"It's great to be able to follow my child's learning development

and daily activities through Tapestry their online journal."




My daughter has enjoyed her time at Playbox

it is such a safe, kind, and fun environment.

Thanks to Playbox she has grown and developed beyond our

expectations, their input with this has been invaluable."




"I feel so safe leaving my daughter with the team.

They are nurturing, friendly, fun and caring.

They have an enormous range of activities for learning through play.

The ratio for staff to children is just right and they really know my little girl."




"I like that there is a great secure outside area

for the children to play in and that they are

encouraged to play outside all year round.

My child enjoyed meeting and making new friends.

Choosing new books every week to enjoy at home;

playing outside & Monkey Music."
